. obviously the blame starts at the top with the president and kathleen sebelius. this looks like a systemic breakdown. looks like you just can't point at the people at the very top. there's a lot of people up and down the food chain that failed miserably on this. >> it is systemic. it goes to the heart of the democratic party argument an argument that the government can do a lot of good things really well. if we can't get this right it under mines that entire argument. >> an argument you've said very publicly, in this case you support it. >> do i. >> you want this for personal reasons, not for professional reasons, you want this to work for personal reasons and there are millions of people like that, which makes this all the more, all the more just unbelievable to people who believe that the government can do big things and do it well. >> it's not just a personal thing. i have two older daughters who have been able to take advantage of obama care. but i think any american, whether you're a small government conservative or big government liberal or like most of america you just want governm

, it was off the record, he said it on the record the other day, said i hope kathleen sebelius is up to handling the roll out of aca because right now i'm very concerned. this was last year. said i think next year is going to be really ugly. max baucus called it and he was scared a year ago this was going to happen. how did the administration allow this to happen? they were getting warnings. >> right. >> from capitol hill. >> well, it's a great question. we'll spend years doing the kind of post mortem on this. it count have gone any worse. it's not like the white house wasn't focused on it. for months they were saying, all year, this entire year they have been saying the most important thing the only thing that matters is getting the health care, the aca more broad but the roll out particularly right. they didn't get it right. but part of it is -- i think part of its difficulty is the way it was passed. because of the dysfunctional congress there was no chance and no one worked harder than senator baucus to find some republicans and make this a bipartisan -- susan collins and others
